If your degas bottle is over pressurizing, thats usually a pre-sign, symptom of leaking headgaskets. Engine combustion gases are leaking by the head gaskets or through cracks in the head allowing those gases to enter the cooling system. This over pressurizes the cooling system causing the degas bottle cap to vent. When the cap vents it allows coolant to escape also.

Also, Ford modified the MIN-MAX coolant level. The new MAX level is the old MIN level. That makes it around 1" from the bottom of the front of the degas bottle.

If your degas bottle is holding the correct pressure the coolant level shouldn't move much at all. The bottle holding pressure will keep the coolant from expanding, to a certain extent. Ford changed the coolant level because of the puking issues, and the weak caps, they upgraded the caps and kept the lower coolant level.
